I think Jones could beat JDS, not because I think Jones would be dominant at HW. I just think he matches up with JDS well.
On the other hand I think he matches up badly with Cain. Not because I think Cain is better than JDS, I don't, I think JDS & Cain are a brilliant mesh of styles. I just think Cains style with him being a bigger wrestler with amazing cardio would be a nightmare for Jones.
Anyway, I think Jones' kickboxing is a bit overstated. He relies on a handful of movies and really doesn't show a whole lot of variety. Yes, he dashes in some "flair' but when he gets desperate he starts throwing those moves with more and more frequency. Also he doesn't wrestle like Cain. Quite frankly I don't know if Jones has the level of cardio Cain has. They just have two different approaches in how they wrestle. I think JDS does have the advantage on the feet power wise and his speed is nothing to take lightly either.
